Most Significant God in Greek Mythology


In,James M.Hunt’s “the Olympians”, Zues is the most significant god in Greek mythology that portrays an image that is powerful and villainous.


he is villainous because he raped his sister. but he is powerful because he overthrew his father. He is leaderous because he took the throne and saved his sibilings.


For example, Zeus rapes his sister after he shape shifts and she pulls him into her breasts. But he is leaderous because he took the thrown.


In hames M.hunt's, "the olympian" he states "Zeus courted her unsuccesfully. he then turned to trickery, changing himself into disheveled cuckoo. Hera feeling sorry for the bird held it to her breast to warm it. Zeus then resumed his normal form and taking advantage of the suprise he gained. raped her" Also James M.hunt states" Rhea, unhappy at the loss of her children, tricked Cronus into swalling a rock, instead of Zeus. When he grew up Zeus would revolt against Cronus and the other titans, defeat them, and banish them to Tartarus in the underworld".


THis shows that Zeus is a leader because he over threw his father and took the throne while also saving his sibilings this shows that trait because he could've just stayed in hiding or just never took over and lived his life, because of countless reasons. But he is villainous because he raped his sister he did this because there wasnt many other options but without her consent made this action villainous.


Lastly Zeus has made an impact on all gods because he basically started the life for other god's goddesses and olympian's by overthrowing his father and starting offsprings.
